The history of the color Magenta is more interesting than i'd realized. Here's a link to read about it in Stir magazine where you will learn that "magenta is a mixture of red and blue wavelengths that cannot be generated by a single wavelength of light" which i didn't know but i'm not surprised. Also this excellent article by Liz Elliot in the Journal of Unlikely Science goes even further to explain the mad science behind the color.
